Shirley Brown's 1974 recording of "Woman to Woman" was the last major hit for Stax Records; the Memphis company went bankrupt little over a year later. After purchasing the Stax catalog in 1977, Fantasy Records opened new Stax offices in Memphis under the direction of legendary Stax songwriter-producer David Porter. Brown was re-signed to the label, with this 1979 David Porter/Lester Snell–produced disc being among the highlights of the new Stax. Long unavailable, the album features the West Memphis–born singer applying her soaring church-hewn tones to a set of driving dance tunes and emotion-gripping ballads with the real soul feeling for which she is famous.
